uncertain as guidance really has a tough time handling this atmosphere set up. we do know we will get rainfall over next 48 hours and check it out we are starting to make some ground on where we have been over past few months but we're only down about a inch of rain now, since july 1st for philadelphia. so again, it is getting better here but we don't need 6 inches of rain additional. that is what we could see over the next five days. it all just depend on the exact set up and where joaquin head. we have a couple showers over philadelphia, right now. that is what is left of the cold front which is sliding off shore. noticeably cooler. later tonight and certainly on thursday we are dealing with dryer conditions, before another round of some steady rain returns to the delaware valley. again all because of the front that is stalled off shore. there is joaquin looking great on the satellite imagery east of the bohamas, again, still disconnect from the main flow of the you had. we are waiting for that connection to return. and that will determine where exactly joaquin heads. look at the temperatures down
to 71 in philadelphia low to mid 70's south jersey. is there cool air to the north and west. fall weather fans this is what you have been waiting for. that will get here over next 24 hours. it is because of the front that is stalled off shore. breeze kicks up out of the northeast over the the next several days and weekend. it will be windy, especially at jersey shore. it has been like. that potential for minor coastal flooding. through the weekend and next week. that is not because of joaquin this front still lingering over us brings that round of rain on friday and then as we get in the second half of the weekend we will watch joaquin. coastal impacts this weekend from the high pressure, pressure difference could be gusting those wind over 50 miles an hour. beach erosion, rough surf dangerous rip currents for sure. so not good bet to enter the the ocean to plan to do swimming. that is not good smart idea. as far as rain goes, thursday late in the day we will see steady rain return. that is off and on throughout the day friday. that rain could be heavy. saturday we will catch a break. here's the latest on joaquin,
wind at 85 miles an hour gusting to 105. track takes it to the southwest, and then shifts it back north and this is sunday, still potentially a category two hurricane maybe making land fall along north carolina coastline and weakens inland this would bring rain to delaware valley if that track verifies. through saturday maybe 2 inches of rain, more as you head further south then the east or west. the let's add in sunday and machine for joaquin the heart of the rain here bull's eye would be down across central virginia, up to 10 inches of rain. that is almost like a, better case scenario if that track does head through carolinas. stay showers tonight, 58 degrees. tomorrow mostly cloudy, breezy, rain is late. breaking down your temperatures cool start. we will be in the 50's, again by mid afternoon, only in the lower 60's, that rain returns, thursday night into friday. and steady rain, 58 for the high friday and they are back to the 60's saturday, sunday and monday and we will wait ch

football, eagles are eighth in run defense. connor barwin says, success means nothing without w's in the record column. >> yeah, we have been stopping the run but i'm in the beating my chest, we have two losses and one win. we have a lot to improve on. obviously we want to be better against the run and as i have said, we have got a big challenge with the redskins, on sunday. chip kelly says he doesn't think kiko alonzo needs surgery on his injured knee. alonzo, acquired from buffalo in the trade that sent lesean mccoy to the bills hurt his left knee against cowboys in week two. kiko missed all of 2014 with the acl tear in the very same knee. lets switch gears. there is still time to vote for our friday football frenzy game of the week. we will be broadcasting from the winner's school this friday. go to cbs philly.com/frenzy to vote. here are options for the week monsignor bonner at archbishop carol. cardinal o'hara at academy
